What could we see of interest to classic car enthusiasts?
There may be yet more changes to stamp duty with increases for non UK based buyers of properties in the UK and possibly an end to the fuel duty freeze - see our recent news item on concerns over fuel duty increases. More

Holding the budget statement on a Monday is unusual but it is expected to start at 12.30pm and as usual we will have a prompt report on the statement and the measures announced of interest to classic motoring enthusiasts posted here within an hour or so of the Chancellor sitting down in the House of Commons.
